I am trying to download an MP3 file onto Itunes on my Ipad
Are you using iTunes to perform the download? Or Safari?
I'm not quite sure I follow. If you want to get an MP3 file onto your iPad, load it into iTunes on your computer and sync it from there.
If that doesn't answer your question, please post back and explain further what it is you are trying to accomplish.
Is it not possible to download an mp3 from safari to an iPad?
I realize that, but not sure if the OP does.
Your subject and your post appear to ask two opposite questions. Do you want to move an MP3 from iTunes to iPad or the other way around?
It is not possible to do that.
